Dog Walking is SUSPENDED until further notice.

Dog walking at the Farmington Regional Animal Shelter is a chance to enrich the life of a shelter dog while enjoying the outdoors and the beauty of the Farmington river trails. Dog walking can be done any time we are open to the public from 11:30 to 5:30 p.m.

  • Those interested in dog walking will need to read and agree to the rules and regulations and sign a liability waiver.
  • Bring the forms to the animal shelter and we will make a copy of your driver license and then you are eligible to walk dogs.  Fill out a dog walking form right here!  Download our waiver of liability here.
  • You must be at least 18 years of age to walk the shelter dogs.
  • Children are welcome to come along but the adult must have control of the leash at all times. 

Our dog walkers are only eligible for dog walking. To be a full volunteer please visit the volunteer page.
